Procurement Resource study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. It also offers additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (capital investment details, production cost details, economics for another plant location, dynamic cost model). In addition, the report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges.

Procurement Resource’s detailed report describes the stepwise consumption of material and utilities along with a detailed process flow diagram. Furthermore, the study assesses the latest developments within the industry that might influence Nickel production cost, looking into capacity expansions, plant turnarounds, mergers, acquisitions, and investments.

Procurement Resource Assessment of Nickel Production Process:

1. Nickel Production Process From Sulphide Ore: This report contains a detailed cost analysis of nickel from sulfidic ore. At first, in the pre-heated oxygen-containing furnace, sulfidic ore is placed. After the smelting of ore, around 45% of nickel is formed. Afterwards, oxygen gets injected to get rid of all iron and sulfide traces. At last, using the fluid bed roasting technique, nickel matte is refined to achieve 95% purity.

2. Nickel Production Process From Lateritic Ore: This report contains a detailed cost analysis of nickel from lateritic ores. At first, nickel is mined via extractive metallurgy from the lateritic ore. Using the roasting method, extraction takes place that gets rid of moisture. Next, the nickel oxide, as well as chemically bound water, is removed in the reduction furnace. At last, the method of fluid bed roasting is used to refine nickel matte in order to get 95% purity.

Product Definition:

Nickel (Ni) is a chemical element belonging to the Group 10 of the periodic table with an atomic number of 28 and is classified as a ferromagnetic metal. It appears to be a silvery-white metallic element that has a lustrous and shiny look. It is present in the environment naturally and can be found in the earth’s crust and core as well as in plants, seawater and animals. It has many properties, like being corrosion and oxidation resistant, ductile, hard and malleable. It has a melting point of 1453° C and a boiling point is 2913 °C.

Market Drivers:

The market for nickel is witnessing growth due to its primary application in producing several superalloys that have high strength, ductility, and heat and corrosion resistance. These alloys are further used to make a wide range of applications like toasters, electric ovens, boat propeller shafts and turbine blades, and desalination plants that change seawater into fresh water, which boosts demand. Other uses of the commodity include being used in rechargeable batteries, wires, plating, foundry products, coin making and also in catalysts and other chemicals, which further boosts its market demand.
